1 | There is a difference between annoying self promotion and sharing your work, and it all comes down to your intent. Don’t be afraid of sharing if you’re proud of your work and think it will help people or entertain them.
2 | Use hashtags with moderation. It can be great to use specific niche hashtags to get your work in front of the right people. But using generic hashtags like #design or #business means you’re likely to attract an audience of people who are following hashtags to further their own growth and aren’t actually interested in your work.
3 | Think about what you’ll be adding to the world by sharing your work. If you’re feeling nervous about promoting yourself, realise that if it helps even one person it will be worth it!
4 | To be noticed, you need to build a body of work rather than just one good piece. People are more likely to share a set of great work rather than one individual post. That means to be noticed you need to have both quality and quantity.
